Our 1st Trick or Treat!

Last year the kids were barely 7 months old. They were impossible to keep in costume, let alone take out trick or treating. We lovingly passed along the costumes to Susan & her trio. Glad they at least got 1 good picture out of it b/c we surely didn’t get any good pics last year,…

2 Angels & a Devil

This is a preview of the kids’ costumes. Let me tell you how impossible it was to get a picture of all 3 together. I don’t know how this family portrait thing is going to go based on what we went through yesterday. Maybe the preparations for Daylight Savings Time is interfering & causing my…

Scribbling fun w/ Dad!

Putting a crayon in the kids’ hands has been a challenge. The #1 reason? It goes directly in to their mouths. Another triplet mom posted about this not too long ago & hers were 19 months old. I was hoping it would be a magic number for age so we decided to give scribbling another…

Signs That Halloween is in the Air

This morning I snuck a surprise into my middle schooler’s lunchbox. Word on the street is that middle school is the end of the road for the handwritten lunchbox note from home, but too bad for my kid.  I will not be silenced.  Plus, Halloween is this week and who doesn’t love a marshmallow Peep…

I do not like Clomid

I’m spotting

I started spotting today. I am 5w5d and I am numb because I’m so scared. I know spotting can be very normal in early pregnancy. However, I also know spotting can lead to devastation. For now, it’s very light and light brown, which means it’s old blood and even though any spotting isn’t nice, brown…

My grocery budget

For years I have been feeding strays that have ended up in my house.  I’m sure you’re familiar with this.  Kids bring home a tiny kitten they’ve found while playing outside, or a stray dog wonders into your yard and won’t leave.  For me though, it’s always stray kids.Sarah brought home her boyfriend.  I fed…

Light in the Tunnel

I’m going to be perfectly honest here: I’ve never come fully to terms with Danny have a billion therapies. OK, three. It seems like more; the weeks where he has 3 sessions in one week are just overwhelming in a way. I look at him sometimes and think, wow, it takes this much help, this…
